Cleveland, GA (PRWEB) September 10, 2009
PathFinder Digital, LLC, today announced the launch of PathFinder TV, an Internet-based service that allows any person, business, or organization to broadcast live events to any number of viewers. Through the proprietary Producer's Station, a camcorder and Internet access, content can be delivered in real-time to authorized viewers who can in turn provide live feedback and access libraries of video content on demand.
PathFinder TV is comprised of two major parts; The Producer's Station and the PathFinder TV Portal. The portal allows the producer to enter their content meta-data (allows easy integration into billing systems and industry standard databases) and organizes the data for the customer. The Producer's Station is a fully automated plug-and-play appliance that accepts audio & video from any source, processes the signal as directed by the PathFinder TV portal, and broadcasts the signal with all relevant control information.
"The goal of PathFinder TV is to enable new business opportunities for online and broadcast video content," states Rich Tarpley, CEO of PathFinder Digital. "As the popularity of online video continues to grow exponentially for both consumer and business applications, PathFinder TV is a key component to broadcasting high quality content with full controls over viewership."

"The launch of Pathfinder TV leverages existing infrastructure and expertise, and provides a quick market entry for independent producers who want to provide a live TV experience to their audiences."
Utilizing a standard web browser on either a PC or Mac, viewers will be able to browse a master calendar of events and/or any archived events where producers has given permission for the general public to view or download. The embedded, smart technology offers customers the ability to not only authenticate subscribers but control the access to exclusive video content based on authorization services.
